Cris Cyborg vs. Ronda Rousey, it’s the fight that nearly everyone has wanted see for the past couple of years. It hasn’t been building for as long as Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao before they finally boxed, but it’s starting to feel that way.
And with Rousey’s return to the Octagon finally announced, there are plenty of teasers out there trying to make us believe that the fight might not be as impossible as we were beginning to believe.
In fact, UFC president Dana White said on a recent edition of Speak for Yourself on FS1 that if “(Rousey) wins that fight (with Amanda Nunes), her and Cris Cyborg are eventually going to fight. Ronda wants that fight. It will be the biggest pay-per-view in UFC history.”
That would be fine by Cyborg, who has worked long and hard to get a fight with Rousey. She doesn’t care about belts, she just wants the fight, believing she would devastate Rousey.
“For sure, if I fight her, she’d have to do surgery on her face after. I’m no kidding.”
